That’s down to pre-crash YEG levels. Yikes.

Kelly Cryderman of the Globe & Mail spent a day at Calgary airport recently. At it's low during the emergency lockdown, traffic was down to 300 passengers per day. Recently it has been up to 1000 per day. Average per day ... pre-COVID ... 25,000 per day! Now and going forward, air travel will not be a pleasant experience with all of the new procedures and restrictions. For example, during temperature checks, if you test high, they can prevent you from taking your flight. Unless, insurance companies are going to include that in flight cancellation causes (if they do, probably at a huge premium), then you are out of pocket. A lot of people are going to think twice about flying, particularly out of the country.
In her discussions with airport and airline officials, they are projecting it will take 2-3 years for the industry to recover to normal levels.

Tentatively looked at flying up to Fort McMurray and back instead of driving myself this time...still charging over $400...that’s a nope.
